WhipTail Technologies Introduces 6TB SSD Tier 0 Storage Appliance

SUMMIT, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, WhipTail Technologies Inc., a provider of solid-state drive (SSD) tier 0 storage appliances, announced availability of its 6TB WhipTail??? SSD appliance. Still manufactured as a 2 rack unit (2U), this makes WhipTail the highest-capacity SSD tier 0 appliance available to mid- to large-sized enterprises, with the smallest footprint.

"Enterprise customers continuously seek solutions that increase performance while satisfying their need for higher capacity. With advancements in technology, SSDs increasingly are sought after to deliver in many demanding applications," said Jeff Janukowicz, research manager, Hard Disk Drive Components and Solid State Drives, IDC. "As a relatively new player in the enterprise SSD space, WhipTail is making a name for itself with the introduction of 6TB, high performance SSD, a capacity point rarely seen."

WhipTail, now available in 1.5, 3.0 and 6.0 TB and varying levels of redundancies, is best suited for enterprises with poorly performing databases, over-taxed virtualization storage pools and underperforming email systems.

When compared with traditional storage, the WhipTail SSD appliance:

  • Accelerates the delivery of data by a factor of 10
  • Reduces report run time by a factor of 10
  • Provides up to a 90 percent energy savings
  • Reduces the data center footprint by 60 percent
  • Reduces database report generation and load time by 90 percent

WhipTail pricing starts at $46,000 for a 1.5 TB system.
